It's True Love
I bought the "Woman's Day Complete Book of Handicrafts" (1973) a while back. It was only over the weekend that I really sat down and had a good look though. It's the most fabulous book. It covers everything - knitting, sewing, macrame, collage, hatmaking, toymaking, tatting, the list goes on. I wonder if the naughties will be remembered like the 70's for amazing craft. Will women in 30 or 40 years time be out trauling for "vintage" craft books from 2008?
When I came to this page my heart sang. I have to make it. I don't know when. I don't even know if I'm capable but I have to give it a go. This is true love. I think this it's the most beautiful knitted garment I've ever seen. Someday, sometime I'm going to go somewhere absolutely fabulous and I'll be wearing this garment - handmade by me.
